Cross decorated by Members of the Congregation on Easter Sunday (2016)
Jesus chose twelve disciples to spread the Word throughout the Kingdom. Jesus knew that one of his disciples would betray him. Roman governor, Pontius Pilate sentenced Jesus Christ to be crucified on the cross. On the night before Jesus was betrayed, when they were gathered round, he took bread, gave thanks and said ‘take, eat, this is my body broken for you, do this in remembrance of me” in same way after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks and said “drink from it all of you, this is my blood shed for you, do this in remembrance of me’.
On the cross, Jesus said “Forgive them Father, for they do not know what they have done”. Jesus was laid to rest in the tomb. On the third day, he rose. Mary, upon visiting the tomb, saw the stone rolled back and Jesus’s body was gone and Mary began to weep. A voice said, “Why do you weep”, Mary replied “My Saviour has gone and I do not know where they have taken him” Jesus responded “Do you not recongise your Saviour’s voice”.
We will hold special services leading up to Easter Sunday – when we celebrate the coming again of Jesus with the Resurrection. On Maundy Thursday, we will replicate ‘The Last Supper’ this act symbolizes that Christ shared a meal with his disciples before he was crucified on the cross. On Good Friday, we remember that Jesus died on the cross for our sins.
